In What Order?

Some ask what order they should take. I often recommend the parking lot course first and then either the Non-Sportbike Training Days (for bikes other than race-replic supersports) or On-Street Training next.

Street training focuses on practical strategies for managing cornering in the street environment.

The Non-Sportbike Training Days hone physical and vision skills through immersion, repetition and reinforcement.

Both are necessary for fully developing proficiency.

Take the ADV course anytime.

Scholarships are available through the BMW/MOA Foundation.
